5) August DEAM Calendar
4) Starting the School Year
- Cooperative games are a great way to start the school year. I have a previous blog with some ideas.
- OPEN also has Personal, Social Responsibility Modules with a variety of ideas.
3) Professional Development
- This is also an important component to building a quality physical education. Some teachers are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend conferences, but rarely would every teacher in a district have this chance. Now that physical education is part of a well-rounded education, we have a seat at the table to advocate for teacher training. Here is a FAQ sheet on utilizing Title II funding.
- I highly recommend using the US Games Presenters Network. Please contact me and I can put you in touch with the proper person.
2) My Fitness Pal
- I started using MyFitnessPal and have learned a lot about myself in the process. By recording everything that I eat/drink, I am more accountable. If you have tried this, I recommend giving it a go.
1) Big Life Event
- I have to take this opportunity to add a personal note. I married the love of my life on July 29, 2017. We are so happy!
